We can make a difference in the education of your child with special needs
Wiscarson Law serves a wide range of needs for individuals with disabilities.

In response to clients’ needs and requests, we expanded our services to assist with other disability-related matters. In addition to special education, Wiscarson Law can advise and assist clients with guardianship matters and with obtaining accommodations in higher education.
How We Can Help
We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs
What Our Clients Are Saying
Diane and her team advocated for our son to ensure that his school district met their responsibilities and provided financial support for his placement in a residential treatment center. Her diligence and firm demeanor ensured that the initially-recalcitrant District elected not to go to hearing and settled via mediation. Now our son is gettting the help he needs and we are no longer facing finanical crisis. Need help with a special needs kid? Hire her!
“Thank you Lidia for all your help and paving the way for all the kids that do not fit perfectly in the square box!”
“I want to thank you Diane. You have been a great support to our family! Your counsel has been a great help to me personally because advocating for [our son] alone has not been successful. I now feel like we are actually getting somewhere in the process. Before, I was like a deer caught in the headlights. Thank you again – you have been a godsend!”
“Our son is doing FANTASTIC! You have made all of this possible. Your efforts helped get [our son]the team that he deserves and that values him rather than tries to change him and blame him for his challenges. Thank you for everything!!!”
“She is doing great! Because of all your help, she is in a regular ed class with pull-outs for reading and a tiny bit of socialization. Truth be told, she wouldn’t have received all that she has and wouldn’t have progressed so far without you.”
Annie, I just wanted to formally thank you for being our advocate today during [our son's] IEP. I’m certain that without Wiscarson law, this would not have resolved so quickly. And now, we can celebrate that our beautiful son now has access to preschool just like his peers! Thank you, also to Diane for consulting with Annie and for the legacy you have built in Portland advocating for children with special needs. It’s incredible and such needed work. You all are wonderful people that we are so glad to have on our team.
